Consider this “Current Events Drinking”. While its gotten a bit lost in the recent hollow insanity generated by insurance industry Astroturf groups screaming “socialist death panels out to steal your Medicare “, every Friday brings another set of banks laid low by the bursting of the real estate bubble. In grim honor of the little pieces of paper traded by Wall Street that have given our entire economy a case of the swine flow, this quite tasty drink takes my mind off the troubles of the Great Recession.
1 oz. Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
3/4 oz. dry vermouth
3/4 oz. reposado tequila
1 barspoon honey
3-4 dashes absinthe
Stir with cracked ice and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with fresh grate cinnamon and thin slice of radish.
